Commonly known as Sandpaper Tree or Knockaway, Anacua is a subtropical tree in the Borage family. A popular ornamental in Texas, this species is hardy in dry areas and north to central Texas, where the plants may die back in cold winters. It blooms from spring through summer with white, fragrant flowers that cover the tree in dense clusters. Bright edible orange fruits then ripen from April to June. Needs lots of water to get established, but then becomes quite drought-tolerant.
